"Baby Come Back" is a song written by Eddy Grant, and originally performed and recorded by him and the rest of his band The Equals, a group from North London, England. It was a mixture of rock and roll and beat, very much reflecting the London sound of the 1960s. It was first released in 1966, a year after the band formed, but did not chart. However after impressive sales in the rest of Europe (it reached #1 in Belgium and The Netherlands) the song was re-issued on 1 May 1968 and reached #1 in the UK Singles Chart on 3 July 1968 spending three weeks there. In all the song stayed in the UK Top 75 for 18 weeks.
